Stopped in to have a tall cold one and enjoyed every minute!!! The waitress Rochelle was very friendly and a joy to talk with. I will tell all my friends to stop in and meet her and enjoy the beer.

Surprised by the relatively few TA reviews of the Earl of Sussex. It's a great spot for a beer especially when the patio is open and the sun is shining! I guess it's one of those places that the locals want to keep for themselves....More

Stopped by brunch this morning. Massively, underwhelming food. Nice service - great patio - food was cold. Plates messy. Hollandaise goopy. I can see why the place was near empty. Touristo.

I love the patio and I always find the food good. It is a great place to watch sports on the big screen on the patio. I've been frequenting this place for almost 20 years.
